Pig in a Blanket

28 Oct

On the poster for this year’s Positively Petite exhibition is a picture of my entry from last year; my diminutive “Pig in a Blanket”.  This whimsical approach to papier mâche had it’s beginnings in the 1970’s when I still lived in the Maritimes. As a child my imagination often ran wild when listening to adults’ talk, especially when my Dad made us ‘pigs in a blanket’ for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Many Children’s nursery rhymes centered on little pigs as well and the theme worked its way into my psyche over the years. Originally I planned to create three; one for me and two of my sisters as a tribute to our early years in the ship building village we grew up in.

Whether I’ll make more in this genre time will tell as it’s an art form that emerges once in awhile, especially on nostalgic, winter days as a way of remembering my past.
